Tuition fee loans for EU students 

 

EU tuition fee loansAs an EU student, you can apply for a loan from the UK government to help with tuition fee costs. If you applied through UCAS you'll get a tuition fee application form from them.  

The loan will depend on such factors as where you live, your course, where you're studying and whether you've studied a higher education course before.

You can't apply for maintenance grants or other living expenses loans unless you satisfy the UK residency requirements. However, some help may be available from your home education authority so we advise you to approach them directly.

Go to Gov UK website for more information on undergraduate tuition fee loans

Erasmus + Masters loan scheme (France and Spain)If you're from France or Spain (or if you're an EU student resident in France or Spain) you can apply for a tuition fee loan to help with tuition fee costs for postgraduate studies.

A loan of up to €12,000 is available for a one-year Masters degree and a maximum of €18,000 for a two-year Masters degree. You can apply directly with BPCE in France or Microbank in Spain. The decision to award a loan depends on the bank concerned.

Eligibility depends on factors such as where you live, your course, where you are studying, and whether you've studied a higher education course before. If you've already received an Erasmus grant during your first degree you can still apply for an Erasmus+ Master Loan.
Visit the Erasmus website for more information on the Erasmus + Master loan scheme
Postgraduate loans 

The UK Government has introduced a new postgraduate loan scheme for the 2016/17 academic year. You can borrow up to £10,000 for the purpose of completing an eligible postgraduate Masters qualification.

EU / International fee status

EU students who satisfy the UK residency requirements will be classed as home students for fees and may be eligible for funding towards living costs. If you've lived outside the EEA during the past three years, you may have to pay international student fees and will not be eligible for support from the UK government.

Research funding

Public funding for postgraduate research is mainly provided by Research Councils who make awards directly to the University. Some research bursaries are also given by the academic schools at NTU.

Global study awards and other sources of funding for study in the UK

There are some awards available through the ISIC Association, StudyPortals, and British Council IELTS for study in the UK. 

A variety of external organisations including governmental agencies, charities and industry also offer funding opportunities for EU postgraduate students. Go to these websites for further information:

Help and advice

If you're an EU student and need advice on funding, or you have questions about whether you will be classed as international or EU for your fees, please call our student financial support team on +44 (0)115 848 2494 or by email. Information is also available on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.
